during the obama administration. rick, romney may have been running for president forever, but obama has been president for almost -- you know, for 3 1/2 years. >> and it seems forever. >> only to some of us. >> we're not going get the median incomes up until income growth up. simplification has been to do be done. obama takes no interest in this. rick, when was the last time you even heard president obama talk about growth? >> let me actually switch -- let me switch to mark now. mark, what do you think of the obama tax plan? >> well, look, i don't know if obama has really a tax plan, but i don't think the problem is taxes here. i think the problem is people don't have an income. the reason they don't have an income, they don't have jobs. we have a demand problem in the economy, not a tax problem. cutting taxes, if you have no income, does not make any difference. we need to stimulate demand. how can we stimulate demand? we can do it in a variety of ways, but cutting taxes is not going to get us where we want to go. >> victoria, the message of mitt romney, and a lot of people, is if you
about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package,
is that president obama and congressman ryan have almost the exact same proposal for the next ten years, save $1 trillion from medicare, not by cutting benefits or raising costs to elderly, but reducing payments to hospitals and other kind of providers. interestingly those two are in the same place on the next two years. romney for whatever set of reasons says he doesn't want to do anything in the next ten years, which means that $1 trillion that his vice presidential running mate would save he does not want to save. he's in a different place on the next ten years. so let's go to the period after that. what's the long-term plan that each of these guys has for cost containment. again, very interestingly, president obama congressman ryan want to achieve exactly the same level of medicare spending over the definite future. they want to increase by gdp plus 1.5%. they would get there different ways. president obama would get there by efficiencies, new methods. ryan would get there by having private competition. in terms of the actual dollars, it's the same. romney, again, we can ask why, does not wa
going after the oil and gas industry when it has created the most jobs in america in the last four years? >> i'm glad that under president obama that we have fewer oil imports but we want everyone to pay their fair share. >> gentlemen thank you very much. we appreciate it. coming up. we hear can't wait for tomorrow night's debate. so we are going to talk about growth and prosperity, tax poli policy, out-of-control spending and debt. team obama kcoerces companies ad not warn companies of impending budget cuts. the president is trying to hide a flood of job losses before the election. the kudlow caucus is going to debate that proposition. free market capitalism is the best path to prosperity. i'm kudlow, we'll be right back. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's s
an endorsement of obama care in the process. governor romney is one of the great stories over the last two years that he's been running. at bottom, at heart, he's proud of the law. he tried to find a way in the primaries to be for his own law and not give that up and say i'm proud of what we did in massachusetts. he knew he couldn't be -- he had to figure out a way to be against obama care. he found himself in a ridiculous position of saying i love my own law but it's not good law for the rest of the country even though i said that in an op-ed two years ago. i claimed that to get through the republican primaries. it's an impossible straddle and one that maybe he had to do in order to get through the primary electorate now in this ridiculous position of having to -- he should be proud of the law. a law he is proud of. he hasn't been able to embrace because of the complicated primary dynamics. this is where he should have been all along. it's hard to see it giving him political advantage it might have under other circumstances. >> it shows political weaknesses on mitt romney's part. the first is w
mr. or president obama for another four years. >> what, if it's over 150? >> i think if it's over 150, you're going to see him a whole lot for the week after that, talking about jobs and how he's creating jobs, yeah. >> um-hum. >> i know that doesn't make you happy. we can pile that on your unhappiness for the -- >> you're just saying either/or, you're not predicting what's going to happen with jobs, right? >> well i've seen as high as 130, as low as 100. i think it's a little too early to talk about it. i think it will be on the low side of that range, but that's why i think under 100 is bad and above 150 would be great. >> the bad numbers really haven't hurt him recently so i don't know if the good number -- i don't know at this point and what's the participation rate going to do? how are they going to play around with that this time, going under eight by the election? >> well, if participation continues to fall off, then yeah. >> right. >> unfortunately that's a pretty wonky, geeky conversation to have. >> doesn't matter if it's under eight, if he can claim it's the same as when he
sentiment was such that at least earlier in the year that the the multiple might contract if obama won. so we weren't making a political call. i'll let you guys -- >> now it's gk oing up because it's anticipating an obama win this. >> i've been surprised about that, that maybe the multiple isn't impacted by the presidential election. i guess we have the debate next week. but i think it's been more about fed policy. >> there are those that say that the market hates uncertainty. and that we know what we got the past four years and even though everyone -- maybe certain players don't like the way it has been treated, but the market's done pretty well. so at least it knows what it's getting if obama is reelected. >> nobody seems to be worried about anything in the near term. but the earnings -- fundamentals matter and i believe they will again. i think the earnings -- >> you're arguing you'll be right eventually. >> i hope so. >> is that a good question? >> what keeps me up at night is if the earnings reflect being up and i miss it. that's what i want to get right. >> you look at the late '90s,
, in terms of dividend taxes, obama care, taxes and higher fees there? >> i most certainly do. i think he's going to try to push his agenda. some people want to look back too the clinton years when he lost big time in the midterms just as obama did. >> november '93. >> clinton gave ground. obama has given no ground. i don't know there's any indication he'll give any ground this time. that's a big mistake if that's the case. i hope not. but it appears that's a real possibility. >> how times have changed. i thought mitt romney had a bit of a -- he could do a bit of a "saturday night live" skit, he had some good laughs there, but think about al gore, vice president to clinton, how often did he use president clinton when he was campaigning in 2000? >> times do change, you know. right now you go with the hot hand. president clinton obviously the hot hand. >> if president clinton is the hot hand for the current administration, boy, we haven't just lowered the bar on employment. back to you. >>> when we come back, are loyalty cards the new coupons in the tech area? >>> a few moments left in euro
and it will limit the upside for next year. >> is there a point at which you see obama in the polls and you say actually now i believe that we are going to get the tax hikes and the market should fall? there must be a watershed quite soon as we head towards particularly what happens in the house and the senate. >> our focus has been on the senate. we think that's what's going to mostly influence the outcome. i hope there's appetite to see the rates low. i don't see a benefit from raising them. i would call a coin toss on the senate outcome. but wiser minds will see the wisdom of helping the fed in its efforts to stimulate asset prices by not onerously raising taxes on the most important asset class other than homes. >> have you actually calculated a number? you said it would give back some of the rally. but is there a number or a percentage? >> 12-month price target is 1,500. we've written in our research that 1,600 would be a reasonable 2013 end. i need to see an acceleration in global growth. >> contingent on both, not just the tax issue? >> both. somewhere between 1,500 and 1,600. >> david,
in europe are overblown. he thinks europe could be break even within about three years. moving on, he talked about cigna. he said that hmos are generally a beaten down sector, but that cigna is in a much better position than competitors. less vulnerable to the issues of obama care than others. this might have surprised people. he said chipotle is under a major threat from talk woe bell. 4,000 consumers talked about how they liked taco bell and the recent menu rolled out. einhorn thinks this could pose a competitive problem for chipolte in the years to come. >> just to be clear, he did not say he was going long yum, did he? >> good question. someone did ask him that in the follow-up, and he said, look, i like what's going on at yum, but i'm a little nervous about two things and i'm sure there were others. kfc in china he thinks has issues and imt not convinced there's anything good going on at pizza hut. for those reasons he's on the sidelines. he thinks taco bell is in a great competitive spot. >> kate kelly join you go us from the value investing congress. when we come back, he's the man re
